1630 - 1930 

Three hundred years ago, a bare 
hundred stalwart Pilgrims landed 
at Plymouth. Today 120,000,000 
people in the United States con- 
stitute one of the greatest nations 
on the earth. 

Fifty years ago, a humble be- 
ginning was made by a firm des- 
tined to be the most complete 
food store in this locality. Today 
its endless variety is surpassed 
only by metropolitan stores. Its 
service is unequalled — its prices 
second to none. 

C. B. & Y. has a record to which 
it looks with pride.

We celebrate this year too : 

Here's a young store, only five

quality and value, at moderate prices.
